Discover treasures from the costume and model collection that spans from Christiania in the 18th century via Paris in the interwar period and up to our own time.

In theater, anything is possible! Through the illusion-making of actors and the audience’s devotion, time and space are transformed: an ordinary woman becomes a supernatural being and decorative buttons become gems.

In this exhibition you get to see original props and costumes used in historical plays by well known writers such as Ludvig Holberg and Bjørnstjerne Bjørnson. Original models from productions by Ibsen and Shakespeare show how scenography has changed over time.
